Advice Regarding Misunderstandings and Differences Between Salafīs | Shaykh Rabī’ ibn Hādī Al-Madkhalī
Question: The questioner says, “May Allāh preserve you. At times, differences and misunderstandings are abundant between the Salafīs themselves; so what is your guidance and advice in order that the Salafī brothers can be as if (united) upon the heart of one man and repel Fitan and disputes?”
Answer: “This emanates from weakness is one’s Taqwā of Allāh, firmness, and uprightness. If there were firmness and uprightness upon the true command of Allāh then you would not find these things. However, there are personal ills so let them free themselves of these personal ills and let them be firm and upright upon the truth in order than they may be as if they are one body.
As the Prophet ﷺ said:
مَثَلُ المؤمنين في تَوَادِّهم وتراحُمهم وتعاطُفهم مثلُ الجسد، إِذا اشتكى منه عضو تَدَاعَى له سائر الجسد بالسَّهَرِ والحُمِّى
“The example of the believers in their mutual love, mercy, and compassion, is like that of a body. If one part feels ill then the rest of the body suffers sleeplessness and fever.”
I advise them to have Taqwā of Allāh, firmness, and uprightness. I advise myself with that before them, may Allāh bless you. Likewise, (I advise with) diligence upon brotherhood, mutual love, affection, and visitation of one another for the sake of Allāh, the Blessed and High. (This is) as opposed to mutual hatred, rancor, and dislike. We should, rather, exchange mutual mercy and affection. Moreover, from that which will keep us away from differing is that we should avoid every means, which lead to separation. This person goes with the Surūrīs and someone says, ‘I don’t want to abandon him.’ This brings about separation and Fitan. That person goes with the Ikhwān (Al-Muslimīn) and this one goes with so and so group; he goes with such and such party and that causes separation and it causes splitting amongst the Salafīs and differences between them. The reasons are many; none can enumerate them except Allāh, the Mighty and Majestic. So completely avoid the reasons for differing and be diligent in clinging to the Book and the Sunnah and having mutual understanding between yourselves by way of the Book of Allāh and the Sunnah of His Messenger - - عليه الصلاة والسلام as well as unifying your hearts and uniting - may Allāh bless you - your hearts and your bodies upon the truth and upon goodness. Na’am.”
